Danna Paola Teams Up with Morat for New Single “Idiota”

Danna Paola is reuniting with Morat for new music…

The 25-year-old Mexican actress/singer has joined voices once again with the Colombian quartet for their new song “Idiota.”

Danna Paola, Morat

While not the first time they collaborate, this new song reinforces the bonds that unite Morat with Mexico.

The song, originally composed by Morat, together with Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres, has a rhythmic pattern that resembles dembow, and closely represents the current Latin landscape.

That’s why they reeled in a female voice to complete and effectively narrate the story behind it. It’s a beautiful mix of vocals that perfectly give life to the story adding Danna’s pop fusions.

The lyrics talk about a love that is gone but you can’t forget, and you are trying to get back. It phrases the advice that you have probably given or gotten from your friends: “If you love something, let it goIf it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.”

Aitana & Morat Team Up for Alt-Pop Single “Más De Lo Que Aposté”

Aitana is upping the ante with a hot new collaboration…

The 21-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter has joined voices with the Colombian band Morat once again, this time for the catchy new single “Más De Lo Que Aposté.”

Aitana & Morat

Even though the track centers on an on-again, off-again couple, it features a feel-good melody that laces Aitana’s dulcet pop sound with Morat’s infectious alternative rock.

“Sometimes we are, sometimes we’re not / One day it’s hate, another day it’s love / I don’t know the reason / But I always end up with you,” Aitana and Morat chant in the chorus.

An innovative and vibrant music video shows both Aitana and Morat jamming to the song in the middle of the woods. 

Aitana and Morat previously released the single “Presiento.”
